    What do you store in your preps that fills a 5 gallon bucket? If I were to come to your place and start opening your buckets what would I find? (Other than a gun at my head :) )

    First, here is my idea. I want to pack 4 or 5 1 gallon mylar bags into a 5 gallon bucket and then seal the bucket with some oxygen absorbers. I would fill the mylar bags with either beans or rice, and I would use absorbers on them too. That way if somebody opens one bucket, they will have...
